    Add me to the list of people who watched ticks crawl around on my "70 wash insect shield overpriced treated clothing." I literally watched at least 5 ticks crawl on my long sleeve shirt for 5 minutes...

    I keep seeing "300 years" being thrown around, which would indeed make for a very old tree. However, the Trail of Tears didn't really begin in earnest in Georgia until about 180-185 years ago. A 200...

    The Georgia-AT.org website says you can camp at Jarrad Gap, but not north of it.

    I BELIEVE that Jarrard Gap is the southernmost spot that you camp at without a cannister. We camped there and that left a 7 or so mile hike to get through the restriction zone. Someone mentioned...

    The Ursack or products like that are approved. But it's not a big deal. Just stop at Jarrard Gap (the last stop before the restriction) and from there it's an easy hike to Neel Gap where you're out...

    I would prefer to park at the end, shuttle to the beginning and hike back to the car. However, sometimes my travel plans don't allow me to get on the trail until 2 or 3pm, and at that point, I'm not...

    I have no experience with what you're going through, but at least in GA and NC/TN, it is pretty easy to walk 50 steps to the left or right and be pretty well hidden to do whatever you need to do. If...

    I know you said out and back, but what about this: Park at Woody Gap (mile 20). Shuttle to Horse Gap (mile 10) or Cooper Gap (mile 12, skips Sassafras Mtn). Hike to Gooch Mtn Shelter (mile 16)....

    It was at Low Gap shelter in GA, around noon on a Saturday. So I'm guessing somebody SOBO stayed there overnight and were getting off at Hogpen or Neel that day and didn't want/need it anymore. I...
